to what people are expecting from the first lady michelle obama's speech tonight. >> look, that is part of the reason for the excitement because first of all, have you these people and the configuration as you can see behind me, i'm above the podium which is a really great vantage point. as you can see, people are -- very, few people, very few delegations are actually on the floor. it is a bowl. they are up and around on the sides. that is, i think, making it sound a lot larger, louder, than it actually might be. it is very loud. they are very excited and they are not all here yet. there are a lot of empty seats. typically people are at dinner now but will be here in time for the keynote address. people are excited to hear castro the keynote speaker, but principally this is michelle obama's night. she is already throughout the campaign. they sent sought an e-mail a half hour ago asking people to text and send in $3 donations in advance of her speech. she told ryan seacrest today on his radio show she had not watched ann romney's speech and came here briefly to look at the stage and look
and his wife, michele obama. >> michele was unbelievable. >> and joe biden. >> john kerry. >> john kerry did well, biden did well, clinton was incredible, michele obama was incredible. but you know, it -- >> it's a high bar to clear for the guy. >> and also, though, if you want to compare it to tampa, i mean, obviously so much -- >> they had to hold everyone back. >> so much better than everybody at tampa. we're not going to even -- but as far as substance goes, i agree. >> beautiful. >> he said nothing, but he said nothing so much better than mitt romney said nothing. >> yeah. >> which i was talking -- >> that's it. >> let's be clear, we were talking about how high the bar was for obama. talk about mitt romney, it's a low bar for mitt romney to clear that bar. he was somewhere in between those things. i thought the first two-thirds of the speech, and many people have said this, it did feel like a state of the union speech. little bit of a laundry list and very -- not just as mark said, not only did he say nothing new, he said nothing bold and he said nothing very specific. you know, one
michelle obama starting off tonight. bill clinton joe biden, john kerry and of course, tomorrow night and then president obama the featured speaker the acceptance speech at the bank of america stadium on thursday evening. about half a mile from here. it is all happening here in charlotte. that's why we're here. it is good to have you with us. where you happen to be in this great land of ours. 1-866-55-press is our toll free number. use that to give us a call and chime in on what you think about what you've heard leading up to the convention. still talking about all of the lies we heard from tampa. paul ryan still trying to make excuses. he's lying about how fast he can run a marathon. he will lie about anything. he will lie about his own age probably. still a lot of afterthought about last week in tampa and a lot of excitement about this week here in charlotte. 1-866-55-press. now let's see how it's going to work here. peter ogborn in charlotte with me, sitting on my right. your left i guess. hello. >> n
. the convention starts tuesday. we will hear from first lady michelle obama. on wednesday, elizabeth warren will appear. and former president bill clinton. and, of course, the president and vice president on thursday. let's take a look at the floor here for a moment. >> in a report from fox news, the stage alone at last week's republican convention cost $20 million. the democrats have spent $7 million here at the time warner cable arena where the speakers are going to be surrounded on three sides by the audience. also different from the republican production, the democratic convention has multiple official sites. we'll be taking you to the time warner cable arena and the bank of america stadium. take a look outside of the stadium. activists are planning for bigger protests here than we saw during the republican convention in tampa. as reuters reports, the protests that were planned for the republican convention never really materialized, partly because of tropical storm isaac. but activists say they expect a stronger showing in charlotte. let's listen in. >> our goal is to unite groups from
obama and why he should be given another shot at this. michele obama presented a very personal story. we are going to talk to a congressman who had a story more than 24 hours ago. peter barnes on the floor of the democratic national convention. reporter: neil, one of the goals of the obama campaign is to try to reach across generations and we are doing that right here on the north carolina delegation. a few seats down from me, an older delegate wearing what looks to be an original top hat for john f. kennedy, caroline kennedy's uncle. the campaign, of course, trying to appeal to seniors as well as younger voters and middle-aged voters across all the ages. big decisions over the next few years. he is going to say that he wants more time and needs more time. the truth is it will take more than a few years for us to solve challenges that have built up over decades. including creating another million manufacturing jobs by 2016. neil: since it took a while to turn this ship around, you will hear a lot of references to do a job come back up 20 months. a lot of this will go into about a year af
to the speech you will hear tonight from the star of the obama family, michelle obama. you know, this is just like a relay and you start off with the fastest person. >> now, of course, you're also going to hear from the mayor of san antonio, rising star within the democratic party. one of the key swing votes in this election, larry. >> john, can you ever remember a time -- i can't, when the two wives gave major prime time speeches? this is really something new, isn't it? >> i think it is, larry. and i think it has to do with the collapse of trust and authority and political figures in both parties. so these guys, both mitt romney and barack obama need a lift from their wives who soften their image, are much more popular, have much higher approval ratings. this is because public regard for washington, for people in elected office, for leaders of both parties is at a record low. >> all right. terrific stuff. many thanks, cnbc's john harwood. before i bring in my next guest, i want to play some tape. back at the dnc convention in 2008, archer davis seconding barack obama's official presidential
saw video of first lady michelle obama, already here in one of the sky boxes, a live picture there. you see michelle obama, you see her, other folks sitting in the sky box. she's talking to a number of dignitaries and people who are allowed in. so we're watching very closely to see when, in fact, president obama arrives. >> one other point about president clinton. i almost called him governor clinton. back in the day, when i didn't have any of these gray hairs. i talked to somebody who has read the speech, about the 30/30. if you have the under, you will lose. >> what a shock. >> i was on the podium the last time governor clinton nominated a democrat for president. that was michael dukakis. >> we'll still be feeding the teleprompter. >> he will give a very inspirational speech. we're at a crossroads. the american people understand that congress is not functioning, and that the president has put forward critical issues and congress will not act. president -- i think president clinton tonight will talk about their thaw crossroads and basically, do we go forward with the policies that
turkish-sir ya turkish-syrian border. >>> michelle obama in charlotte. we'll talk to wolf blitzer after this quick break. >>> before we move along and talk gas prices, this is a sneak peek. this is the first lady in charlotte. as soon as she steps on the that stage we'll bring you more live pictures and bring in wolf blitzer. she's speaking tomorrow night in primetime. >>> let's talk about those gas prices setting a record high this labor day making a tough situation for a lot of you travelers on this holiday, but is there good news ahead? let's hope so. alison kosik joins me. will we see a drop any time? >> relief should be on its way soon. the reason we've been seeing gas prices go up is we've had a lot of these short term problems. the biggie is hurricane isaac last week. most of the refineries had to shut down or cut back on production. the down time kept the process of making gasoline happening. it was more of a supply and demand issue. other factors pushed prices higher as well. one oil analyst says that prices could wind up dropping 20 cents over the next month. that coming from
. michelle obama recently spoke about the right to vote. >> we cannot let anyone discourage us from casting our ballots. we cannot let anyone let us feel unwell in the voting boolth. it's up to us to make sure in every election, every voices heard and every vote is counted. that's making sure our laws preserve that right. >> nothing is stopping these people from voting. iowa doesn't have any voting i.d. law on the books. everyone can freely exercise their right to vote. as we've been reporting over the last two years, 17 states have passed restrictive voting laws that could suppress millions of americans. so we can't think that this election is in the bag. there's too much at stake. we can't sit at home and depend on others. we've got to come out. we've come too far to stop voting now. voting isn't a privilege. it's a right. a right that people suffered and died for we suffered too hard for this right. we are not going to let anyone take it away, no matter which way the polls go, this is not just about your candidate or mine, this is about america deciding whether it's going to be a nation
for barack obama. some of the rather key ones is because he chose michelle as his wife. >> that was very sensible i think, yes. no, i think that she is a perfect partner for him. she is very strong. she's sort of balances, healthy, and practical firmness with gentleness and nurturing and she's a terrific mother and that is enormously important. >> you know barack better than most people. what will he be feeling? a lot of pressure? does he get nervous? >> i don't think he's nervous. i think he's very prepared. i think the speech is going to be great. and i think, you know, he's probably stretching his long limbs and excited to address the crowd. >> better than bill clinton's? that's the key question. >> i think he'll be different. everyone serves their purpose. michelle was about storytelling. about helping us to kind of frame the campaign issues and deeply, you know, loving intimate ways and bill clinton was about gaining perspective. on the last four years. and i think my brother is going to be about looking ahead. >> i think the crowd rather liked what you've just been saying. it's all
. michelle obama gave a very personal and good speech for her husband. president obama is will give a wonderful speech tonight he is very good. and at the end of the day this is what happen what matters. monday we have the announcement that gas prices doubled and we have the highest labor in the country. and we have the highest deficit. when the speeches are done tonight tomorrow we will get the jobs report and it will show 43 months in a row over 8% unemployment. 23 million americans are out of work. at the end of the day, the speakers are nice and this is a serious election in serious times. and it comes down to whether or not president obama's policies have worked and when you look at the numbers by any real measure you have to say they have not worked. >> so the campaign seemed to be painting two different visions of america. based on perhaps similar experiences that people have undergone over the last couple of years. the romney campaign says perhaps are you not better off than you were four years ago and the obama campaign is saying listen it is tough but we inherited a deep m
have a funny question for you after listening to nancy pelosi speak now and thinking back on michelle obama last night talking about being the mom and she nancy pelosi introduced herself as a mother and a grandmother. and we saw her daughter and granddaughter in the crowd. is it possibly a strong, efficient, accomplished political woman anymore without saying you are a mom first? >> i am not a mom. i guess it is -- absolutely. but i have to laugh about all the times where nancy pelosi has described her leadership in terms of motherhood and in terms of being a woman. and i think it does make her a powerful leader. and i think my life experiences that i bring to the job everyday also make me a strong leader. >> and can i follow-up. michelle obama could have told an alternative story that she went to princeton, she went to harvard law and became a successful lawyer. she went to the chicago hospital system making $300,000 a year. top 1%. it was a successful career story. and she probably had doubts about leaving that behind. why is that not possible to tell that story? >> well, it is poss

profiles i have seen over michele obama. this is a slow rising tide. david gregory didn't get the job just because he was a white male. he is someone who had been a white house correspondent for nbc. he had the skills that were necessary to be a good broadcaster and a good interviewer. the time will come when those jobs will be again available, and there will be a much wider range of people who will be eligible for them. one of them could very well be an african-american. it may be an asian american. i'm not sure. it may be a hispanic american. we are seeing more presents of people with different ethnic backgrounds than just white, anglo and protestant. bryant gumbel succeeded me on "the today show" as the african-american host of "the today show", for example. >> host: for scrotal organ, please go ahead with your question or comment. >> caller: i come from a different journalist background than you, but i feel equally crucial to americans and how they should know what is going on in their world. i was a reporter and an editor at a small, medium-sized weeklies in dailies over the nation fo

in terms of what we look at. between obamamania -- obama and mitt romney, and they are both indian -- obama and romney, they are both in the two range. michele bachmann -- i do not know what it necessarily tells you, but it is sort of a fun thing to look at. it does provide you links to every single fact check that i or my colleagues have done for the candidates. >> excuse me. >> good morning. david, george mason university. i think we have seen in the campaign so far that both candidates are in the position of being challenged. flip-plopped positions. i have noticed so far that both governor romney and president obama, when challenged by a voter or a journalist, it is not to say, "well, the facts have changed at the facts are different. the facts i look at now are not the facts that existed when that was my belief." instead, there are levels of equivocation or bluff. i think one latino group challenged him on keeping the promise of immigration reform that he intended to make. right then and there, i was hoping the president would say, "well, the picture is different. let's look get it impe
unifier at the republican convention was barack obama. i mean that is just the way it is. bill: todd, if you go back to pampa, i saw gingrich on stage, i saw santorum on stage. i saw michele bachmann and herman cain. >> yeah. this was, if anything, tampa was a celebration of republican unity but joe is right that for every convention when you have a challenger who has gone through a primary you do have to go through this process. let's not forget in 2008 at the democratic convention 40% of democrats still wanted hillary clinton to be their nominee. >> that's right. >> that was significant division. and obviously it didn't really hurt barack obama all that much. bill: to both of you in the 30 seconds left, todd, does this make a difference and how much of a difference united versus divided or division or unity however you want to define it, how does that play out in '64 days? >> it would make a significant difference if it were true but it is not true. the fact is republicans are overwhelmingly united behind mitt romney. democrats are overwhelmingly united behind barack obama. bill: j
of government from a democracy to a conservative christian theocracy and that's why we need to have barack obama and joe biden reelected. because it's terrifying people like paul ryan and mitt romney and michele bachmann, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. rig perry. these are scary, scary people who change our form of government into the conservative christian theocracy by blasting what to say as an atheist i want to say to that woman on the republican line, us atheists as was agnostics are amplified by christians much, much, much more than the church of latter day saints, the mormons are vilified by people like she said, bill clinton and other people. believe me, atheists are the last as well as gays, atheists are specially the last people this country still be vilified and put down and psychologically and physically tortured by right wing christians are in the bill, as an atheist are you enjoying coverage of the values voter summit? >> caller: i'm watching it very skeptically. when they talk about values, like i said, it's a very values they want to impose on the country by legislation. being a

"we must consider deep cuts to the $70 billion green defense budget." "and it was working so well."
